William Joler thanks William Lloyd Garrison for his tireless struggle on the behalf of "we colored people", and stresses that when abolition should arrive, it must do so with two conditions. First, Joler states that financial provision for the support of Freedmen need be made in order to allow Freedman time to "get on east and get work". Secondly, Joler states that they must have the right to "marry and intermarry with the white folk". Joler argues that these conditions are necessary to carry out the "principles of right and equality" upon which are based the abolitionist and Free Soil movements. Joler states that without these provisions, the condition of African Americans will become worse than before, and worse than that of the Native Amerindians. Joler states that without the right to intermarry, "we fear that we will go back down into out natural savage state again"
